Pedro Julio Gonzalez


Pedro is an internationally known wildlife artist/naturalist blending art and scientific accuracy. He is guided by his independent studies in ornithology, mammalogy, taxidermy and photography. He regularly observes, sketches and photographs wildlife in the wild and in zoos.

Some of Pedro’s many projects include the production of interpretive art for the California Academy of Science, the Denver Zoo, New Jersey State Aquarium, the Sierra Club, the Nature Conservatory, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the North Carolina Zoo, and the Florida Aquarium.

One of the most comprehensive works he has done, was at Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Coldwater Ridge Visitors Service Center in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Oregon. This exhibit recreates the biological sequence of survival and re-colonization of the area. He worked closely with the National Forest Service geologists and biologists and was an integral part of the collaborative design and conceptual process.

Because of his comprehensive knowledge of art, design and Western wildlife and an uncanny ability to visualize, Pedro adds a dimension of expertise and finesse to his interpretive design and publishing efforts.
